Sailing Christmas Carols

A sailing friend sent these to me.

# 1. ( Sing to the tune , “Jingle Bells” )
Hard a- lee hard a-lee ,
Tacking all the way .
Oh what fun it is to ride –
a High Performance sleigh – eeee
Spectra here , Carbon there,
what fun to spend the buck.
Dollars make us win today.
Hey ! nothings left to luck
OOOOOOOh !
Hard a-lee, hard a-lee
winning is the way,
Dig really deep my sailor friend,
If you want to play-eeee
Melges here , J boat there
See how fast they go,
If you want to get a first
spend money , don’t cha know.

# 2. ( Sing to the tune of ” O christmas tree ” also know as ” O Tannenbaum”
O, wooden boat! my wooden boat!
It is my hope you stay afloat ,
O, worms and rot, I want you not,
There’s bottom paint on , coat by coat.
I varnished here
I varnished there
I used brushes of – the finest hair.
O, Wooden boat! my wooden boat!
All this up-keep gets my goat.

# 3. ( Sing to the tune ” O little town of Bethlehem ” )
Oh little boat of fiber-glass,
How still I see thee lie.
With blisters on your bottomside,
the size of an apple pie.
But in the dark wet brewing,
delamination grows .
Neglected years, the owner’s tears,
West System Epox-y-ose !
